Photographer's Note

A sadhu arrives on a cycle at the Fair ground in Pushkar. I know I shouldnt have cropped off his legs, but he was so close and I cudnt move bak any further, and I had the wrong lens for the occasion, so this is the best I cud do.
From a mere 14,000 to a massive 200,000! This is how the population of Pushkar swells during the Pushkar Fair. A spotlight of one's Indian holiday, the festival hosts around 50,000 camels which are sold, decorated, shaved and raced. The show goes on for a whole week as travellers continue to join in the fun, which includes a number of cultural competitions.
For those intending to visit Pushkar :
Fair Dates for 2007 : November 18th to 24th 2007
Fair Dates for 2008 : November 07th to 13th 2008
